Sky Kitten The Third

Emily spotted a third owlet, who(ooo) was being pestered by a raven. The owlet ended up on the ground for a bit, but she thinks it got back up the tree while she was away. Whole lotta owl )

Owl!

Emily saw a great horned owl at college, and kindly gave me permission to share photos. Just FYI, she has an excellent zoom lens on her camera; she was not up close even though it looks that way.

So: Big Owl on Campus )

A Superb Owl

Because it's Superb Owl Sunday, and I just remembered, here is a very superb burrowing owl. Courtesy of Emily, from the San Diego River:

Look at the birdie

I am stressed beyond the telling of it, so - I'm going to post some photos from a few days ago. One afternoon, Emily spotted a red-shouldered hawk, hanging out on a telephone pole just across the street. I took a few photos. Who's a pretty birdie, then? )

Beeeezzzzzzzzzzz!

Sunday was the monthly Aged Mum visit. AM asked if the swarm of bees was still in that tree in the front yard, so I wandered out to take a look. Yes, and they were building a hive, or nest, or whateverthehell that enormous thing in the fruitless mulberry is.

I got my camera and recorded the edifice for posterity. From several angles, using my telephoto lens. Fortunately, it's been cold enough that the bees were not bothered.
